    Yep sold. The first buyer gave many excuses on not paying up and I got abuse when I put it back up on sale and for a few days after. I could have been enjoying the car but it's done now and sold this time. Did begin to wonder if the time waster had buggared the sale though. I had many wasters in the end and plenty of picture collectors but after over 7000 views on ebay and near 1000 on car and classic its now sold and paid for. Had caused quite a lot of interest so I'm pleased it'll go to someone who will enjoy it and for the first time in 8 years the car is not on my signature

    Couple of teething troubles sorted today. When leaving an MG natter on Thursday night the alternator belt was squealing and the internal fan lever didn't work properly at full speed, both sorted now. If I do say so myself it's a lovely driving car

    Thanks Alan, dish alloys were only available on MG Montego's for a short time before the cars got a facelift and cross spoke alloys came in, although on poverty spec ones it was steels with covers. Dish alloys did continue though with GSi's

    Unfortunately a complete timewaster trying to buy this car. I'm now keeping the deposit and have re-listed it. Don't understand why you would pay a large deposit and not the balance. Gave plenty of opportunity too but not to be, shame as I could have been driving it

    After over 4000 views on ebay, 1400 views on car and classic and countless offers, i'm happy to say the deposit has been paid and I got what I wanted for the car. I will be sorry to see it go at the of the month. But at least it will be used, the car has created a lot if interest on social media and various websites. I've had quite a few emails and texts about memories people had of their cars

    The car has now been provisionally sold awaiting a deposit. Sorry to see it go but at least it will be used. Only took 3 days to sell and its going to a guy with a large MG, Austin, Rover collection so a fellow enthusiast so very pleased

    Now driven over 100 miles, lovely to drive and no issues. Also had 4 people admiring the car when I took it to Ingoldmells near Skegness for a beach day out with the Mrs. Free beer from the beach bar and driving this in the sun. Great day out and whats not to like and to top it all, the Mrs likes the car. It's now on ebay and carandclassic to finance the black MG Montego I have but if it doesn't, it will stay in my collection as it looks great

    Measured the ride height as the nearside looked higher than the offside, And it was by over half an inch, so replaced the spring for one in my spares and now level. No idea why as both springs had the same markings. And the car is running really smooth and cant find the oil leak, so maybe a little somewhere I hadn't cleaned. Will keep an eye on it

    Troublesome speed transducer now replaced and working correctly, steering wheel centralised, clutch adjusted, tickover lowered, unfortunately I've found an oil leak coming from the head gasket after it's blast down the bypass. Very frustrating that so that to look at, can't understand why so will have to find out why. Don't normally get this after I've changed a headgasket so not a good thing. Teething troubles I'm assuming

    Took the car out for a 50 mile shakedown today, few things need doing but nothing major. Steering wheel is a little off centre, tick over is 1000 rpm so a little high, clutch cable is a little low now and the speedo gets to 50mph then goes backwards to 0 the faster you go, I do have a spare speed tranducer so that will have to be fitted. Gave the car an Italian tune up down the A46 bypass and surprised a few cars overtaking them and giving it large. Car ride is very smooth so really pleased with only minor things to sort
